Belfast has just hosted the third biggest international sporting games (after the Olympics and Commonwealth Games) – The World Police and Fire Games – Heinz and I volunteered and were issued with smart red T-shirts, and we welcomed thousands of competitors, their families and supporters to Northern Ireland for 10 days of the most varied competitions and events. We wore our T-shirts at St. George’s market during the Games to show support to our overseas visitors.
There has been a tremendous buzz throughout Belfast as exotic (and very fit) teams of fire-fighters, police, and prison officers enjoyed a very warm welcome. The weather was relatively kind and some competitors even appreciated the fact we were not experiencing the horrendously high temperatures that London was having especially when doing events like the “Stair race” in full breathing apparatus kit up 26 floors!
